  1. I purchased the 128GB with 4GB ram model in all black. My wife’s S8+ that was close to becoming non-functional and I needed a new phone asap. I had previously purchased an A20s for my son and so I first ordered the A30s until I did some research regarding my mobile provider T-Mobile in the US.I cancelled the A30s and got the A51 primarily because of the supported LTE bands. T-Mobile uses the following bands2, 4, 5, 12, 66, 71The A30s only supports band 5 from the that list!However, the A51 supports band 2, 4, 5, 12 and 66. I was gladly willing to pay a little more to ensure I had maximum connectivity with my carrier so I cancelled the A30s and purchased the A51 instead.Now with that primary consideration out of the way, on to the rest of the review. I’ll start with the best parts first.1. Call quality, reception and connectivityThe call quality is excellent on this phone, right up there with my s10+. I think the microphone quality has been improved because my wife loves using the speakerphone and on her hold s8+, her voice occasionally cut out here and there as the mic tried to pick up her voice. Also, the sound quality of the voice has improved as well which further helps to understand the conversation. Reception has been about the same compared to my s10+, which is to say pretty good. We measured on signel strength and asu. The mobile data speeds are excellent even in areas that are typically weaker in signal strength.2. ScreenSamsung AMOLEDs are the best in the business when it comes to screen quality. We are a little relieved the screen is not curved because this allows us to get a robust case to protect everything. The colors, quality and resolution are all indistuingishable compared to my s10+. The front camera is a tiny pinhole so the entire body is pretty much all screen. There is an in-screen fingerprint reader which is optical, rather than infrasonic on my s10+ but it is still reasonably fast to unlock the phone. Yes it is slightly slower than my s10+ but we’re talking milliseconds of difference.3. General usabilityMy wife is not a gamer so I can’t say anything about the gaming experience but she does use a ton of media and productivity apps. For all of her use on them so far, she says they feel snappy. They all open fast and transition well and she multitasks as much as before without a shred of difference. When we first setup the phone, we were concerned because there was some UI lag but realized a lot of processing was being used during the Samsung Switch, which transfered her entire old phone to the new phone. Once the switch was done, we rebooted and the phone was responsive and fast.4. CameraThe camera hardware has some beefy specs. But for a mostly point-and-shooter, it’s hard to really go wrong many camera setups. Picture quality looks great in the light and not as good in the dark compared to my s10+. The slower camera speed is noticeable, transitioning between the main camera/wide/macro takes about a half second, where on my s10+ is pretty much instant. The shutter is just as fast, luckily. If camera speeds are important to you, you would probably not be happy with this phone.5. BatteryI have to admit, we were looking forward to getting more usable time out of the battery. The battery is 4000mah unit and the s8+ was only 3500mah. However, through the typical daily use, we found that the end-of-day percentage left were about the same. We average about 4 hours of on-screen time scattered throughout the day with app use and web-browsing and the battery was around 40% left, which is the same as the s8+. If long battery life is important to you, you would not be happy with this phone but keep in mind, it can easily last an entire busy day on a single charge.Overall, we like the phone for the price of under $300.

  2. Since this is a dual sim phone it was made primarily for international use. Although it was made for international use it works fine in the states. The big benefit is that this phone has been available in Europe for quite awhile, thus a good price drop of the mature international Samsung A51. Standard is 4 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage (not to many phones come with that amount of storage). The Samsung A51, American only model, has recently come out in the states and is considerably more expensive than the mature international version dual sim phone. Another fringe benefit, you can put two sim cards in the phone (only one is active at a time) but that allows you to have two different phone numbers for a single phone. The only surprise was turning it on for the first time. Everything was in Spanish. All of the initial setup was in Spanish. So, I backtracked displays a bit until I found an early display that allowed me to change the phone over to US “English” language. From that point on it was smooth sailing. Without a doubt, this was the easiest phone to set up I have ever owned. There is a Samsung App called Smart Switch (available from Google Play) that you put on your old phone that talks to a comparable Smart Switch on the Samsung A51. It basically transfers Apps, Files, Contacts, Calendars, Etc. from the old phone to the new one. In not sure if it is using NFC or Bluetooth, but it work great in transferring everything. It tells you what it could and couldn’t transfer. The Quick-Start Guide is a little thin, I would highly recommend getting the PDF Users Manual from the Samsung Home Page! The manual is 197 pages, it unlocks the myriad of features on the phone. There is a Virtual Assistant “Bixby” included. Bixby seems to be much smarter than “Alexa” or “Siri”. A nice surprise was the compatibility of the phone with my cars Bluetooth phone system. It paired effortlessly with the car and it also downloaded the entire contact list from the phone into the car system. I haven’t had the phone long but thus far I have had a lot of “great” surprises. This was a great value getting the price break due to it being a mature international version of the Samsung A51. I will follow up after I use the device for a while to update my initial assessment of the international version of the Samsung A51 Smart Phone. There is a clear plastic display protector pre installed, there was nothing in the package that mentioned that.

  3. I mainly use this phone for text, calling, taking pictures, browsing social media, as an alarm, playing gacha. So far it’s a great phone. The camera is really good and takes nice pictures. I’ve never had a problem with the thumb print unlock. At it’s worse i’ve had to do it twice because of bad thumb placement the first time. It 95 percent of the time unlocks first time with thumb print. It’s got a decent amount of storage and also SD card slot. The screen looks very nice and looking at images looks very nice on the screen. The battery lasts me 2-3 days per charge, but with only light use. When I first got the phone, the hey google assistant was always on. This caused the battery to drain drastically over night. If you plug your phone in at night, you might not notice this. This was solved easily by going into settings and battery usage. There are probably some features to this phone, I am not using. But for the price I am really happy with it. My last phone was garbage compared to this. This is a solid mid range phone. It’s not a flagship device, but for what you pay it’s a great phone.

  4. I’ve spent the last number of years using a slew of different phones from OnePlus, LG, Motorola, Huawei, Sony, and the last HTC. I haven’t used a Samsung since the S7. I’ve avoided them because while they were well built, they had software that was so bloated, it drove me nuts.So, what is it like going to Samsung after so long?HARDWAREBack in the day, only Apple rivaled Samsung when it came to the best hardware. Samsung can no longer make that claim. Granted, this phone is excellent, but OnePlus, LG, and Apple are all on the same level in terms of quality build.This phone feels heavy in your hand. I personally like that, but someone coming from an Apple might be very disappointed. Going light weight was not a big consideration here. It seems like they were more focused on packing as much as possible into this phone. That leads to a big issue.Samsung has been cowed into trying to be like Apple and removed both the headphones jack and sd card slot. I see no real reason for this beyond saving money. Apple and Samsung claim that they can’t fit it in, or that no one uses them anymore. Both of those are nothing but lame excuse. Both LG and Sony put both items into their last flagships. LG in fact released HD audio to go with the headphones jack. After using both phones, I REALLY miss both those items. They added a huge amount of functionality and made doing certain things so much easier.They did add the latest and greatest 5G and Wifi connectivity to this phone. That sounds great, but I haven’t noticed it all. I even live in an area where 5G is everywhere. There might be more speed, but everything in my area was already fast. It’s hard to really notice a difference unless you are running a speed test.So, this phone is S-Pen compatible. Great. It would be really good if it actually came with an S-Pen, but you’ll have to pay more for that. By more I mean $40 for an s-pen designed for the Ultra, that is missing some functionality. That’s right, you can’t do gestures. If that’s important to you, you need to wait for the S-Pen Pro to be released “later” in 2021. That one will have a BT connection.That really seems like a fumble on Samsung’s part. I can understand making the s-pen optional and not having a silo for it, like on the Note, but not having the full-blown version available at launch feels like they are missing an opportunity. If people get the regular s-pen, decide they don’t use it, what’s to motivate them into getting the pro version?The S-pen can be handy, but it only makes sense if you get a case that can hold. Thankfully Spigen makes one that is cheap and works well.On the plus side, this phone has the fastest, most accurate fingerprint reader I’ve ever used. It’s easily twice as fast as the one LG was using. The ultrasonic format really makes a difference.CAMERAWhen I first used the Huawei P20 Pro, I was blown away by how good that camera was. The things it did were unprecedented in a camera phone. I used a number of phones after that one, and none of them ever matched what Huawei could pull off.Samsung crushed it with this camera setup. The flexibility it offers is unmatched. From wide angle to super zoom, it’s all there. Some of the tricks they pull off with this camera are truly impressive. From how it combines photos for optimal exposure to the foolish 100x superzoom, the things you can do with this camera are insane.The 100x is nothing you’ll want to use a lot. It’s usable, but not overly clear. Still, the mere fact that you can take a usable 100x photo with this phone is mind blowing.When I say “usable” I mean a photo that is identifiable. It’s nothing I’m going to want to hang on a wall, but it might help trying to identify something.If there is one thing camera doesn’t do great, it’s exposure. It tends to over expose, but that’s it. That’s the only real issue I can find and it’s minor.You might see the 108MP sensor and think you can take some insane RAW photos with that. To a degree, that’s true, but with a sensor like that, you’d need a HUGE amount of light to be able to get good results. There is a reason why Samsung does pixel binning to get its incredible results. On its own 108MP in a sensor that size is not really usable, except in ideal conditions.I love a good wide-angle camera. LG was always a proponent of the wide-angle, and over the years, it’s really come in handy. It’s not something you use a lot, but when you need it, nothing beats it.You get two tele-photo lenses here. The 3X is great for framing your photos, and the 10x allows you to do things that no over phone I’ve ever used has allowed. The 10x really comes in handy for sunsets and times when you can’t get close to your subject.CHARGINGI usually don’t do a write up on charging, but in this case, I think it’s needed. You have wired 25W or wireless 10W. I love that flexibility. It’s not all good though. You know what really stinks? Paying through the nose for a phone, opening the box, and not getting a charger. That’s right. No charger in the box. If you want one, you’ll be paying for it. It’s hard to wrap your head around the fact that they charge you over $1,000, but couldn’t give you a charger. I can’t remember the last time I got a phone with no charger.SCREENTill now, OnePlus had the best screen I’d seen in a phone. It makes sense that Samsung would beat them, considering OnePlus got their screens from Samsung. This screen is amazing. It’s not just it’s looks either. They did some impressive trickery here too. The adaptive refresh is amazing. The big issue with a 120 refresh rate is the battery it burns through. With adaptive turned on, it adjusts. Reading a book or something similar – it drops as low as 10. This saves a huge amount of battery life.BATTERY LIFEIt’s good. It’s not LG V60 good, but it’s good. There have been times when the LG V60 lasted me for two days with normal use. This one has the same battery, but doesn’t last that long. It will easily make it through the day and night though.SOFTWAREWelcome to the worst part about this phone. I know why Samsung doesn’t fix it too. To be honest, I hate the Samsung apps, I hate the excessive bloatware, and Bixby is the worst virtual assistant I’ve ever used.The UI is the more frustrating of the issues here. The main reason is tied to the fact that this is an Android phone. Why do you want to be so different from stock when it’s actually hindering the experience instead of improving it?I understand what Samsung is trying to do. They want to be Apple. They want their own ecosystem, they control, and reap large profits off of. That’s why they have their own assistant, apps, and UI. I’d applaud them for that, if they grow a pair and divorce Android. The only way all the apps, bloatware, assistant, and UI make sense if they are on their own. Just do it already. Become the third option, because as it stands now, your software is awful. It’s trying to sit on a fence, which means it’s not as good as it could be on its own, and it’s NO WHERE as good as stock Android.Now, if you are a handy when it comes to Android, you can remove a lot of the junk off this phone, via ADB. But, stop and think about that for a moment. You just paid top dollar for a phone, and now, you have to waste a solid hour of your time stripping off all the garbage they piled on there. How is that acceptable?If this phone was running software close to stock and didn’t have the bloatware issue, we’d be talking about a legendary phone. One of the best phones ever made. Instead, we have some of the best hardware ever combined in a phone, with steaming pile of dung laid on top of it.Again, if Samsung finally broke free of Android, I think things would be very different. They might also be watching Huawei very closely to see how everything pans out for them. Huawei was forced off Android and now runs its own OS and ecosystem. If it goes well for Huawei, I would not be surprised to see Samsung finally pull the trigger. They already have the OS. It’s been in their Smart appliances for years.I know I’ve bashed Samsung a lot here, but there are some things that do that are excellent. The first one I’ll mention is something that falls into the useful category. It’s their side tabs. The default is your recent apps or apps you’ve pinned. This comes in handy since I don’t like either of Samsung’s default launcher options. You can also add more tabs like weather and select contacts. I first used this with the S6 Edge and I’m glad it’s still around.Now for the thing that Samsung does best, and by best, I mean no one is even close. A deep dive into the sound settings will take you to an EQ setting. This is not impressive on its own, since most other makers offer this. What Samsung does that no one else does, is it gives you a hearing test and creates a custom sound profile for you. As someone who has hearing loss, the impact this has is incredible. The only thing I don’t understand is why it’s so buried. I mean you need to dig to find this thing.I find it rather ironic that Samsung is more on board with Windows integration than any other maker I’ve used. Samsung imbedded the features needed and allows you to use apps in Windows. The others I’ve used require you to download an app and you cannot use apps in Windows. This is a handy feature to have for anyone using an Windows PC. They also support the cut and paste feature. Copy on your phone – paste on your PC and vice versa.I have to relate one final frustrating issue with Samsung’s software. The last three phones I used all were on board with Google’s autofill for apps. That made signing into a new phone an easy experience. Samsung has its own thing. I spent quite a while hunting down passwords that I hadn’t used in nearly two years.WILDCARDThere is a factor to consider, if you’ve only used Apple or Samsung products. You’ve been spoiled. By buying the most popular phones, you’ve always had a massive selection of cases and accessories. As someone who’s been using the fringe players for years, I’ve been stuck with only a few choices when it comes to cases. Sometimes it was very difficult to find cases, or I had to pay more than I would have liked.Having a massive selection does add to the value, since you end up paying less for cases as everyone tries to undercut each other. On top of that, you can find the crazy cases that include extra battery, wallets, and added functionality. If you’re using a Sony or OnePlus, you can only dream about such a thing.This becomes even more of a value I you are one of the people in a program like Amazon Vine. I was able to get three cases for this phone, through Vine. Before this, only once was I able to find a case for my phone.Another factor is that there are also apps on the Play Store that are dedicated to tweaking the Samsung experience. Some of them are quite useful. This is something you don’t find when using the minor players.VALUEIs this phone a good value? No. I’m sorry at its retail price, it’s not. The LG V60 might have a weaker camera and older processor, but it’s a far better value. The OnePlus 9 Pro, is a slightly better value, if we are talking about a full priced phone. If you want this phone to be a value, you need to land this phone for $900 or less. Anything higher just isn’t worth it. If you’re going to pay full price for this phone, you might want to look at the iPhone. I do not like iOS, but they have an excellent build, great camera, no bloatware, and fast updates.SHOULD YOU BUY THIS PHONEIf money is not an issue and you love Samsung – yes.If money is no issue and you want the best camera – yes.If money is no issue and you want the best Android phone – maybe.If money is an issue and you want a great Android phone – buy the LG V60.If you want a clean Android experience – buy the Pixel 5 or OnePlus 9 Pro.If money isn’t an issue and you want the best phone – buy the iPhone 12 Pro Max.If you need to have a sd card and headphones jack – buy the LG V60.If you need to have a sd card and headphones jack, but hate LGs software – buy the Sony Xperia 1 II.

That leads to a big issue.Samsung has been cowed into trying to be like Apple and removed both the headphones jack and sd card slot. I see no real reason for this beyond saving money. Apple and Samsung claim that they can’t fit it in, or that no one uses them anymore. Both of those are nothing but lame excuse. Both LG and Sony put both items into their last flagships. LG in fact released HD audio to go with the headphones jack. After using both phones, I REALLY miss both those items. They added a huge amount of functionality and made doing certain things so much easier.They did add the latest and greatest 5G and Wifi connectivity to this phone. That sounds great, but I haven’t noticed it all. I even live in an area where 5G is everywhere. There might be more speed, but everything in my area was already fast. It’s hard to really notice a difference unless you are running a speed test.So, this phone is S-Pen compatible. Great. It would be really good if it actually came with an S-Pen, but you’ll have to pay more for that. By more I mean $40 for an s-pen designed for the Ultra, that is missing some functionality. That’s right, you can’t do gestures. If that’s important to you, you need to wait for the S-Pen Pro to be released “later” in 2021. That one will have a BT connection.That really seems like a fumble on Samsung’s part. I can understand making the s-pen optional and not having a silo for it, like on the Note, but not having the full-blown version available at launch feels like they are missing an opportunity. If people get the regular s-pen, decide they don’t use it, what’s to motivate them into getting the pro version?The S-pen can be handy, but it only makes sense if you get a case that can hold. Thankfully Spigen makes one that is cheap and works well.On the plus side, this phone has the fastest, most accurate fingerprint reader I’ve ever used. It’s easily twice as fast as the one LG was using. The ultrasonic format really makes a difference.CAMERAWhen I first used the Huawei P20 Pro, I was blown away by how good that camera was. The things it did were unprecedented in a camera phone. I used a number of phones after that one, and none of them ever matched what Huawei could pull off.Samsung crushed it with this camera setup. The flexibility it offers is unmatched. From wide angle to super zoom, it’s all there. Some of the tricks they pull off with this camera are truly impressive. From how it combines photos for optimal exposure to the foolish 100x superzoom, the things you can do with this camera are insane.The 100x is nothing you’ll want to use a lot. It’s usable, but not overly clear. Still, the mere fact that you can take a usable 100x photo with this phone is mind blowing.When I say “usable” I mean a photo that is identifiable. It’s nothing I’m going to want to hang on a wall, but it might help trying to identify something.If there is one thing camera doesn’t do great, it’s exposure. It tends to over expose, but that’s it. That’s the only real issue I can find and it’s minor.You might see the 108MP sensor and think you can take some insane RAW photos with that. To a degree, that’s true, but with a sensor like that, you’d need a HUGE amount of light to be able to get good results. There is a reason why Samsung does pixel binning to get its incredible results. On its own 108MP in a sensor that size is not really usable, except in ideal conditions.I love a good wide-angle camera. LG was always a proponent of the wide-angle, and over the years, it’s really come in handy. It’s not something you use a lot, but when you need it, nothing beats it.You get two tele-photo lenses here. The 3X is great for framing your photos, and the 10x allows you to do things that no over phone I’ve ever used has allowed. The 10x really comes in handy for sunsets and times when you can’t get close to your subject.CHARGINGI usually don’t do a write up on charging, but in this case, I think it’s needed. You have wired 25W or wireless 10W. I love that flexibility. It’s not all good though. You know what really stinks? Paying through the nose for a phone, opening the box, and not getting a charger. That’s right. No charger in the box. If you want one, you’ll be paying for it. It’s hard to wrap your head around the fact that they charge you over $1,000, but couldn’t give you a charger. I can’t remember the last time I got a phone with no charger.SCREENTill now, OnePlus had the best screen I’d seen in a phone. It makes sense that Samsung would beat them, considering OnePlus got their screens from Samsung. This screen is amazing. It’s not just it’s looks either. They did some impressive trickery here too. The adaptive refresh is amazing. The big issue with a 120 refresh rate is the battery it burns through. With adaptive turned on, it adjusts. Reading a book or something similar – it drops as low as 10. This saves a huge amount of battery life.BATTERY LIFEIt’s good. It’s not LG V60 good, but it’s good. There have been times when the LG V60 lasted me for two days with normal use. This one has the same battery, but doesn’t last that long. It will easily make it through the day and night though.SOFTWAREWelcome to the worst part about this phone. I know why Samsung doesn’t fix it too. To be honest, I hate the Samsung apps, I hate the excessive bloatware, and Bixby is the worst virtual assistant I’ve ever used.The UI is the more frustrating of the issues here. The main reason is tied to the fact that this is an Android phone. Why do you want to be so different from stock when it’s actually hindering the experience instead of improving it?I understand what Samsung is trying to do. They want to be Apple. They want their own ecosystem, they control, and reap large profits off of. That’s why they have their own assistant, apps, and UI. I’d applaud them for that, if they grow a pair and divorce Android. The only way all the apps, bloatware, assistant, and UI make sense if they are on their own. Just do it already. Become the third option, because as it stands now, your software is awful. It’s trying to sit on a fence, which means it’s not as good as it could be on its own, and it’s NO WHERE as good as stock Android.Now, if you are a handy when it comes to Android, you can remove a lot of the junk off this phone, via ADB. But, stop and think about that for a moment. You just paid top dollar for a phone, and now, you have to waste a solid hour of your time stripping off all the garbage they piled on there. How is that acceptable?If this phone was running software close to stock and didn’t have the bloatware issue, we’d be talking about a legendary phone. One of the best phones ever made. Instead, we have some of the best hardware ever combined in a phone, with steaming pile of dung laid on top of it.Again, if Samsung finally broke free of Android, I think things would be very different. They might also be watching Huawei very closely to see how everything pans out for them. Huawei was forced off Android and now runs its own OS and ecosystem. If it goes well for Huawei, I would not be surprised to see Samsung finally pull the trigger. They already have the OS. It’s been in their Smart appliances for years.I know I’ve bashed Samsung a lot here, but there are some things that do that are excellent. The first one I’ll mention is something that falls into the useful category. It’s their side tabs. The default is your recent apps or apps you’ve pinned. This comes in handy since I don’t like either of Samsung’s default launcher options. You can also add more tabs like weather and select contacts. I first used this with the S6 Edge and I’m glad it’s still around.Now for the thing that Samsung does best, and by best, I mean no one is even close. A deep dive into the sound settings will take you to an EQ setting. This is not impressive on its own, since most other makers offer this. What Samsung does that no one else does, is it gives you a hearing test and creates a custom sound profile for you. As someone who has hearing loss, the impact this has is incredible. The only thing I don’t understand is why it’s so buried. I mean you need to dig to find this thing.I find it rather ironic that Samsung is more on board with Windows integration than any other maker I’ve used. Samsung imbedded the features needed and allows you to use apps in Windows. The others I’ve used require you to download an app and you cannot use apps in Windows. This is a handy feature to have for anyone using an Windows PC. They also support the cut and paste feature. Copy on your phone – paste on your PC and vice versa.I have to relate one final frustrating issue with Samsung’s software. The last three phones I used all were on board with Google’s autofill for apps. That made signing into a new phone an easy experience. Samsung has its own thing. I spent quite a while hunting down passwords that I hadn’t used in nearly two years.WILDCARDThere is a factor to consider, if you’ve only used Apple or Samsung products. You’ve been spoiled. By buying the most popular phones, you’ve always had a massive selection of cases and accessories. As someone who’s been using the fringe players for years, I’ve been stuck with only a few choices when it comes to cases. Sometimes it was very difficult to find cases, or I had to pay more than I would have liked.Having a massive selection does add to the value, since you end up paying less for cases as everyone tries to undercut each other. On top of that, you can find the crazy cases that include extra battery, wallets, and added functionality. If you’re using a Sony or OnePlus, you can only dream about such a thing.This becomes even more of a value I you are one of the people in a program like Amazon Vine. I was able to get three cases for this phone, through Vine. Before this, only once was I able to find a case for my phone.Another factor is that there are also apps on the Play Store that are dedicated to tweaking the Samsung experience. Some of them are quite useful. This is something you don’t find when using the minor players.VALUEIs this phone a good value? No. I’m sorry at its retail price, it’s not. The LG V60 might have a weaker camera and older processor, but it’s a far better value. The OnePlus 9 Pro, is a slightly better value, if we are talking about a full priced phone. If you want this phone to be a value, you need to land this phone for $900 or less. Anything higher just isn’t worth it. If you’re going to pay full price for this phone, you might want to look at the iPhone. I do not like iOS, but they have an excellent build, great camera, no bloatware, and fast updates.SHOULD YOU BUY THIS PHONEIf money is not an issue and you love Samsung – yes.If money is no issue and you want the best camera – yes.If money is no issue and you want the best Android phone – maybe.If money is an issue and you want a great Android phone – buy the LG V60.If you want a clean Android experience – buy the Pixel 5 or OnePlus 9 Pro.If money isn’t an issue and you want the best phone – buy the iPhone 12 Pro Max.If you need to have a sd card and headphones jack – buy the LG V60.If you need to have a sd card and headphones jack, but hate LGs software – buy the Sony Xperia 1 II.

  6. I’m very pleased so far with the A51 international version with dual sim and 128 GB. The Canadian version sold by telcos is 50 to 70% more expensive and does not have dual sim and only 64GB storage. The international version does not have NFC but that was a feature I was not interested in. I am particularly pleased that it does not automatically load Telus/Bell bloatware like the Canadian Samsung phones do. I am disappointed that Samsung sells a phone in Canada with different features than the international version (NFC vs dual sim) under the same model number. I had originally purchased the Canadian model locally but returned it and purchased this one with no regrets. The phone came with charger, cable, headphones, screen protector pre-installed and a clear plastic case. The box was sealed with Samsung stickers and the phone had a plastic covering on it so everything seemed to be brand new. The startup screen initially starts up in Spanish but the language selection is quick and easy on that same screen after which there are no residual language issues. The warranty card with the phone indicates 1 year coverage in Central America so you are relying on the seller 90 day return (unless you are planning a trip to Puerto Rico or the Caribbean 😉 Based on the product price I am personally OK with the warranty risk.

  7. So far this phone performs great. It is fast and very responsive. 16GB of RAM! I could open a lot of apps in the background and it is still running without sluggish. It is new and never been used (I think) since the imei is still good and not being registered. This phone with 512GB storage is sold out pretty much everywhere and you cannot even get them from Samsung website. Don’t buy 128GB. It is useless since the storage is so small. Add $50 and you could get 256GB. However, I recommend 512GB.What is great is the camera. It works a lot better than S20 Ultra 512GB. That one was a let down and I returned it. I stuck with S8 Plus for 4 years but I love that phone. The autofocus and nightime mode improved significantly at least for me. The S20 Ultra autofocus is horrible. It seems the multitasking works a lot better to. App can easily works as popup instead of of multiple presses in s8 plus. Speaker sounds is a bit louder and has more bass sound. Wi-Fi 6 and 5G are definitely the best features. With 5G, I am no longer having blackout in certain area around my house area. When there is no 4G LTE, 5G will take over and when there is no 5G, 4G LTE is taking over. In the past, I only have 4G LTE and 3/2G. You have three different customization on how to switch to different apps (multitasking). I haven’t really go out and use the camera yet although it is the main reason why I am buying this phone. Another plus side is this is a t-mobile version.The only downside is no micro sdcard, 100X space zoom (a feature JOKE from Samsung Marketing department), 3 buttons instead of 4 and finger print from the front display. For finger print, I love the rear touch since it is more convenient to use with one hand. Finger print is a bit troublesome to detect unlike the old one. (Update: You have to press a bit harder on the display to get your fingerprint detected. So far it is working better than I first initialed test). I am hoping Samsung will bring the sd card back in the future. Seriously 108MB, 8k (never use this feature ever), 4k size of photos and videos and you do not provide sd card? Even my Sony A7RIII works great with micro sd card in sd card adapter. There is no excuse of not giving customer sd card option. The excuse of sd card is slowing down phone performance is an old myth provided by none techies or those people who never used sd card. Not sure why the hate on sd card. If you don’t want to don’t use it. Recently so many big companies either getting hacked, attacked with ramsomware or services shutting down cloud drives becoming a joke. Samsung shutting down their own cloud for photos/videos services and Google their unlimited photos. With all the security issues and possible shutdown, it is not a safe approach for storing your photos/videos for backup.To work around it, you can use- USB OTG C to female USB A/C port for USB flash drives- USB OTG sd card hub/ports with sd card readers and USB A/C ports.- 4/5 TB hdd drives are still having reasonable pricing with only small increased in pricing. I am lucky to keep up with the news to buy 8TB to 16TB drives before scalpers took over the market. S21 ultra has the ability to read exFat/fat32 by default and ntfs for small usb flash drives. For large drives like 2/4/5 TB or larger in NTFS format you need other special software to read the NTFS. NTFS format has better storage efficient and security than exFAT and fat32. I am using paragon software to read the ntfs ($9.99) and total commander. For the usb hub station I am using, without a pd power delivery I could not read/write to ntfs hdd drives. I haven’t try it on smaller OTG (USB 2.0/3.0) to see if it is working on hdd drives. Will update on that later.- Buy UHS-II readers to get faster reading/writing speed even if you are not using UHS-II sd cards.Buy one of the USB 3.1 gen 2 cable or gen 2×2 USB C to USB C to reap the 10/20 Gbps (theoretical) speed. I will update more once in the future especially the camera part.Update:I bought a hub station with 5 USB ports (2 x 2.0, 2 x 3.0, 1 x C 3.0) 2 x hdmi, 1 x dp port, ethernet, USB c powered port (100w), UHS II regular sd and micro card reader. This thing has one usb c cable attached which you can connect to your phone. This thing is simply awesome. It is better than my old Samsung Dex which doesn’t come with extra USB ports , extra display ports and sd card readers. With 100w to power this hub station, I can connect to several usb devices without the worry of connection loss issue. Since I am doing a lot of reading I don’t have to use my desktops or laptops. I probably will buy a small battery powered monitor to turn this thing into a “laptop”.Using my hub station, my wireless speed is~478.82 to ~480 Mbps Download from Ookla. Upload is not provided but I assume it is above ~22 Mbps~380 to ~438 Mbps Download from Google. Upload is ~23 MbpsHowever, this is my router and ISP dependable and not the phone. I should have test the phone using the 5g speed on clear and country side. Will update later on that.Next month or so I am going to use a lot of the photography so I could evaluate the camera performance. I know that from few shots, the default auto camera is a lot better than S20 Ultra (which I used only for few days). The autofocus is fast and photo taken is not blurry. The HDR processing makes the photo looks better too. I could see the clouds contour enhancement and colors look a lot better too. What I wanted to know now is the nightime shooting. I did take few snapshot in a darkroom and so far it seems to run perform better than S20 Ultra (which takes 5 to 10 seconds) or something not even getting anything during the autofocus.

  9. The phone works well, is easy to handle, great camera, great battery life, & overall a nice size. I have tethered for hours almost daily without a problem for months now.-conMy main con is that it doesn’t remind u that u need to restart after not doing so for many days, it just doesn’t make/receive any calls. Then when you restart it, they all start pouring in. So may not be good if you have sensitive issues. They should probably do a software update.May charge a little slower if using a usb connected to a laptop

  10. Samsung s20+ specifically is the best streaming phone I have ever used comparing to the iPhone 12 mini and google pixel 6. U will break it with no case but despite it not being military grade it’s sleek it’s beautiful it’s perfection internally whether it’s the chipset, to the 12 GB of RAM, and the 4500 mah battery with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥everything is top spec. Plus to hold the phone as a 130 lbs it fits in hand prefect it’s skinny n sleek n slippery so get a case cuz u don’t wanna drop ur super computer phone. She has a aluminum chassis with gorrila glass 6 and is also waterproof up to 1 meter. Phone is so good I can stream outside on 5g like I’m in my house it’s soo butter smooth and doesn’t over heat at all unless u enter a sauna or volcano in that case get a phone cooler lol 😂

  11. El celular llegó impecable, prácticamente nuevo. Solo ligeros detalles en la parte de los “botones de volumen y encendido”. Pero esto es de esperarse en un equipo que no es nuevo. Cualquier funda cubre ese detalle sin tema. Pero en verdad ni se nota.Llegó con cargador genérico, no es carga rápida o por lo menos el teléfono no lo reconoce como carga rápida. Llega en cajita generica, pero todo muy bien protegido. Entrega super rápida, Amazon no decepciona.En cuanto a funcionamiento llevo una semana de uso y nada falla. Gran pantalla, sensor de huella en pantalla funcionando, camara fotográfica excelente. El zoom es x30 e increíble. El teléfono ya se actualizo a Android 13. La conectivad wifi6 es super rápida y estable. La conectividad 5G a este precio es súper favorable, espero conservar este equipo varios años. Y tienes la posibilidad de agregar una tarjeta micro SD para almacenamiento externo. También está liberado para Mexico, sin problenas de redes. Y tiene la posibilidad de usar “e-sim”. Gran tecnología a un gran precio. Gracias al proveedor !!!Update: Lamentablemente el lector de huella dactilar fallo despues de unas semanas de uso diario. Estoy aplicando el reembolso por devolucion. Es la primera vez que me falla algo “renewed”, espero la garantia de Amazon pueda resolver este problema. En lineas generales, pensaria en volver a comprar este telefono. En verdad se disfruta mucho su uso.

  12. Llegó sin ningún problema. Completo. Funcionando al 💯

  13. I received this S20+ 5G Renewed Phone from Stalion Requip, Shipped from Amazon. Arrived withAndroid 13 installed. Phone was well packed and came in a plain box with a nice 5Volt 2Amp (9Volt 1.87Amp) charger, USB C charging cable, and SIM Tray removal tool. The box was labeled NEW. The model I received is SM-G986U1. It is NEW, Pristine, Looks and Performs Flawlessly. The phone is Fully Unlocked for all US carriers GSM and CDMA. I put my SIM card and SD card in the dual SIM tray, powered up and in a short while I was up and running. I used the included Smart Switch app to transfer everything from my old Samsung phone. The phone is fast, color and graphics are great. WiFi and Bluetooth connect easily and work flawlessly. Phone connects quickly to Tracfone/Verizon mobile network and switches smoothly between LTE and 5G as I travel along. My Cell service is Tracfone through Verizon. The S20+ supports most of the LTE bands and 5G bands used by Verizon. This is important especially if you live or travel in a weak signal area with Verizon or other CDMA carrier. I don’t know about GSM carriers. I first ordered the S20 FE, which, I found out, does not support the mmWave bands needed for the fastest 5G Verizon service or reliably connect to Verizon in my weak signal home location. As a result I couldn’t get connected unless I walked outside my house into my driveway. Someone living in a strong signal area would not notice unless they travel into a weak signal area. This seems to be a problem with the design of the S20 FE and not the fault of the Renewer or Amazon. I wasn’t willing to wait and try a replacement S20 Fe 5G so, unfortunately I had to send the S20 FE 5G back, I ordered the S20+ 5G instead. I’m very happy with my decision and with my S20+ 5G which supports 5G mmWave and reliably connects to Verizon in my weak signal area.I can’t say enough good about Stalion Requip. All Renewers are not created equal. Stalion Requip includes a printout of all the internal specs and test results so you know what you’re getting. Purchase your phone from Stalion Requip and you won’t be disappointed.

  14. Llego en perfecto estado

  15. Product came in mint condition and works flawlessly. Watch out for the screen protectors that are way too complicated if you order some with the device. Your best to not go with the bundle package including a cheap case and cheaper screen protectors. Those extras ended up in the trash right away!

  17. Es un excelente telefono si trae el almacenamiento y la memoria ram que dice la publicacion es un telefono que tiene rapida respuesta al tacto

  18. This phone came with a defect of something because it wouldnt respond, and the battery ran out faster than the old phone I was trying to replace.

  19. I’ve been a loyal consumer of Samsung’s galaxy active phones since 2015 starting with the s5. When my s8 active died, I struggled to find any equivalent with updated technology to replace it. So instead of taking a risk with a different or less proven brand, I decided to stick with Samsung. Everything works great and is much faster than my old relic. But less than 2 hours in my pocket and I managed to crack the back glass from camera to bottom right corner. A case and screen protector is on the way. And new back glass is only $30. Also the included charger and cable barely work. From 10% to full the estimated charge time is over 7 hours. Hoping an upgraded charger and cable is more compatible. That being said, I’m still satisfied with this purchase. No buyer’s remorse.Update: definitely need to find a compatible charger that engages Samsung’s “Superfast Charging” feature. It charges from 15-100% in about 30 minutes now. Also impressed with the battery life on this phone.

  20. This is a review for the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G phone re-sold by amazon prime.I’ve had mixed luck buying refurbished devices off Amazon. The first three phones were amazing, I couldn’t even tell they were used/refurbished. The one before this was kinda rough: the body of the phone was poorly glued together, so the seam was always trying to come apart, the glass was scratched, the camera glass wasn’t attached in the bottom half. Very poor. THIS phone is amazing. I’m writing to prospective buyers and to remind myself that this reseller is top notch. The package came with off brand cord and block, nothing else. Phone was double wrapped in bubble wrap. It did come with a completely discharged battery, took about 5 minutes of charging before it read 1%. Literally zero aesthetic issues. All seams and glass were very securely attached. No scratches or dents anywhere on the phone, it literally looks and acts brand spanking new. Very, terrifically happy.For those who are curious, it does not have a headphone jack, it does have a micro SD card slot, and it takes a micro Sim card. Properly unlocked.

When you buy something that has been renewed or refurbished, you do so with the understanding that the product was returned due to defects, but is being resold at a cheaper cost because those defects were corrected. Right?That was my rational when I bought this phone in November of 2023, replacing a cheap $70 dollar junk phone offered to me at a discount by my cellular provider. I mean, my friend bought a renewed phone off Amazon and has been very satisfied with it. Mine began giving me issues roughly a month into ownership.One of the “handy” little security features with this phone is a moisture/debris detector located in or around the charging port. After about a month of owning and using the phone, I was unable to actively charge my phone. The device would give me a warning saying to unplug the device immediately to prevent damage being done to the circuitry. It will not charge the battery so long as the port remains in a “compromised” state. You cannot turn off the sensor in the settings. I’ve tried clearing the port of this supposed dust and debris to no effect. I’ve taken it to rooms where we have dehumidifiers, and it still gives me this warning when i try to charge.The only option left to me was to buy a wireless charging pad, which can cost you up to $100 bucks. I was lucky to have a friend who had one to spare. It’s the only way I can recharge the phone without taking it to a repair shop to test/replace the charging port. Most places I’ve seen online list replacing the port costs $99 dollars for part and labor, but there’s no guarantee my local repair shops will abide by that.I’ve bought other products from Amazon’s “Renew Store” that have been listed as renewed and have not given me issues, such as my bluetooth headset. But for whatever reason, this phone’s issues slipped through their quality control. For that, I’m rather disappointed. I’m also very disappointed that Samsung would build ransomware into their phone and list it as a security feature.More importantly, I am disappointed in myself for simply accepting the phone as it is and using the wireless charger my friend gave me rather than send the phone back and demand a phone that was actually fixed. I will likely end up paying the extra $100+ bucks to have someone else repair the charging port.Knowing what I do now, would I buy with Amazon Renew Store again? Maybe. Between me and my friend, we’ve bought 3 products, with 2/3 being a worth while purchase. Those aren’t terrible odds, and honestly, I could have probably fixed the situation myself if had brought it up to the seller. I may not have bought the same phone though, if I had to do it over. Samsung knew what it was doing when it added this feature to the phone, especially given they sell you the work-around for an extra $100-200 bucks. Slimey wretches.

  22. El equipo jamás decía que era reacondicionado, en ningún lado, el celular llegó pero traía un rayón súper profundo en la pantalla, lamentablemente lo tuve que devolver por no cumplir las notas, si hubiera dicho reacondicionado me arriesgo y se lo que compro pero no fue así.

  26. Llevo usandolo ya unos meses y ahí va mi experiencia.1: me llegó el S20 FE 5g así que si no te importa no poder usar Samsung members deberías estár contento con el poder usar 5g y tener un mejor procesador.2: Es muy bueno y las fotos son lo que se puede esperar de un gama alta de Samsung.3: Me llegó en condiciones de casi nuevo, mucho mejor de lo que esperaba.4: Uno de sus dos puntos malos, la batería, tiene 90% de vida útil aún pero debes saber cómo optimizarla, si solo lo usarás para musica (que tiene muy buenas bocinas) (y soporta tanto aptx y ldac ) así como para trabajo normal está bien.Si eres como yo de uso rudo, baja la app Good Lock y usa distintas funciones para optimizar la batería sin perder calidad.5: Cómprale una Carcasa, ojo Carcasa no solo cristal templado, porque aunque tiene muy buen gorila glass si se puede romper en una caída sobre pavimento.6: Por último, dos cosas, puedes sumergirlo sin problema 😵‍💫, y aunque no le llegará android más actual aún no creo se deba rootear, va muy rápido y casi no se calienta.

  27. Excelente producto, llego completamente desbloqueado para México, se está utilizando completamente desde el momento al que llegó.

  28. I am thrilled with the phone I recently acquired; it has exceeded all my expectations. The device arrived in pristine condition, without any dents, scratches, or blemishes. The screen is crystal-clear, with vibrant and rich colors that make viewing photos and videos a pleasure. The edges and back of the device are free of any signs of wear and tear, making it look as if it’s fresh out of the box and has never been used before.The phone’s camera is nothing short of amazing, producing stunning and sharp images with excellent color accuracy. Picture-taking is a breeze, with the camera’s intuitive user interface. The processor is incredibly speedy, making multitasking and running apps a smooth and seamless experience.Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with the phone’s condition, performance, and features. I would highly recommend it to anyone in search of a high-quality phone that delivers on all fronts.

  29. al ser este mi segundo celular reacondicionado “S10e el anterior”, el anterior me llego practicamente semi nuevo, este, si llego con algunos detalles vicibles, uno irrelevante pero el otro si a considerar, el irrelevante es que llego con un par de rallones en pantalla que prácticamente son imperceptibles, un poco de desgaste normal por uso en el marco y tapa trasera pero nada que considerar, incluso lo sumergi en agua en mi locura y como si nada jeje, el unico detalle fue la bateria, utilizándolo por 4 dias ya y si noto que la bateria no rinde como yo esperaria, claro que es entendible, segun la app la bateriabesta al 83% de capacidad lo cual cumple con lo que amazon promete “un minimo de 80% de vida util”, de ahi en fuera el celular como ral es excelente, la pantalla de muy buena calidad, el procesador, para el uso que le doy esta excelente, las cámaras funcionaron excelente, en general 9/10 salvo ese detalle de la bateria que insisto, por lo que pague no me quejo, espero que a alguien le sirva esta reseña

  30. El celular está en muy buen estado y ya que lo uso es super bueno, como nuevo. La cámara esta excelente 👌

  32. Purchased a renewed Samsung galaxy S20+ and it was like new. Dropped the SIM card in and followed the instructions and was up and running in no time.

  33. I previously had this same phone since T-Mobile released it in 2020. Water multiple drops on concrete, my screen kept freezing up. I read a lot of reviews on this page that made me really nervous about purchasing my phone from this seller but I am thrilled to say I’ve had ZERO pages with this phone. The case and screen were in PERFECT like-new condition, it is a truly unlocked phone and I didn’t need to take any additional steps to get my sim card working.It took about 6 hours to completely get my phone set up (I have a LOT of large files on my old phone and sd card) and the new phone was able to quickly and easily handle the workload with no issues.I chose to twice the same model as my old phone because this is the last version of Samsung Galaxy phones with expandable memory, which was the main selling point for me. As a T-Mobile customer, I did have to download the T-Mobile app and visual voicemail, but again, they were super easy to find in the app store and VV immediately connected to my voicemail account, which I was not expecting.I’ve had great battery life so far (I use my phone a LOT for work) and the 5g connection has been phenomenal. I can confidently say this phone is both exceptional value and quality and I highly recommend this seller’s products.

  34. If you are on the fence about buying a used phone because you are afraid it may come with damage, screen and all sort of issues than worry no more MOBILESUPPLY has amazing devices that are very nice. My device looks basically new, some may have small marks here and there but my devices look amazing. Mark really helped me with my order, the customer service here at MOBILESUPPLY is next to none! their customer service is better than some big chain brands. I want to really thank Mark! Im starting to miss him, such an amazing guy. When my device had a issue Mark on behalf of MOBILESUPPLY worked with me to replace my device and made sure it was inspected to my desires. He was such a kind, nice sweet person and most of all Mark is very professional and unlike other sellers and big brands he CARES about us CUSTOMERS. Thank you MARK for everything I will be telling everyone I know to buy phones from you all.

  36. I am very pleased with the phone. Even though it is not new works great and I’m very glad I got it.Appears with no issues. Looks like new. Phone doesn’t overherheat like my old phone did,even ported the phone info seamlessly.

  37. Everything works well, just like a new phone, arrived in a timely fashion, just not in a manufactures box, this is the second one I purchased, one was a gift, it was so good, I purchased one for myself, nuff said…

  38. I only bought one not in bulk was unlocked like it said it would be and all I had to do was call MetroPCS to get it to work on my account. (No case included duh so make sure to buy one as well)

  39. Works as it should, no issues so far

  40. The media could not be loaded.  Al principio dude pues nunca había comprado algo reacondicionado pero me terminé animando y fue una excelente decisión.El celular es prácticamente nuevo, funciona al 100%, la cámara es increíble, super profesional, un celular bastante rápido y de super lujo.Venia con pocos detalles estéticos en los bordes, pequeños puntitos sin pintura que realmente no se notan nada, de ahí en fuera el celular venia en excelentes condiciones.5 estrellas definitivamente 👌🏻 me hice de un celular de lujo por un precio super bajo para la gama alta que es. Lo recomiendo mucho.

  41. I chose the FE version of this phone as it still accepts a memory card. It is important to me to be able to expand storage as required.The phone arrived and looked like it was brand new. I have had the phone for a few months now and everything is still working as expected.

  43. Had this phone for a week now and wanted to wait on reviewing. Great solid phone from Samsung (as always). This is my 4th galaxy phone from over the years and I keep returning. The refurb seems to be fine, it was listed in excellent condition by seller (Stalion Requip) and seems to be as described (a few very small nicks along phones sides). I appreciate the honest description and fast delivery as I was apprehensive purchasing a refurb. The phone is spectacular in all areas, battery life, fast fingerprint reader, camera(s), snappy performance, fast charging and so on. I will probably not use the phone to nowhere near its capabilities but wanted the premium features just noted. I do not think I would have paid the original price (approx $1,200.00) just 3 years ago at launch but this is definitely more affordable. Thank you Samsung, Amazon and Stalion Requip. Ned D.
